Peter Navarro is among the most brilliant of American patriots and most clear-eyed and impactful of former public servants. Notably, he helped President Trump execute a desperately needed corrective to U.S.-China policy after five decades of reckless “engagement” and appeasement.
It's a travesty that Dr. Navarro has been convicted of contempt for the January 6th Committee for refusing to respond to its subpoenas for information properly covered by presidential “executive privilege.” This conviction was virtually inevitable once the presiding judge precluded such a defense.
In fact, the only people who don’t have contempt for that embarrassing congressional exercise in unchecked political warfare are participants in and beneficiaries of its kangaroo- court antics.
It adds insult to injury that Peter Navarro’s prosecution is the latest manifestation of the serial weaponization of the Justice Department and judiciary against Team Biden’s opponents.
